If only 90k you should have an excellent engine and transmission at least. Something simple caused this car not to start in all likelyhood. Glow plugs starter circuit etc..

Bigest problem since it has sat outside all these years is to hope engine has not stuck. Your climate there is probably not that much different than ours. It does seem to take longer for a diesel to stick but they can. Pull glow plugs or injectors and give cylinders a good soaking will not hurt anything.

Good find. A lot of members like myself would like to find a low milage car even if rough from sitting. You can always locate a southern car with marginal engine for a swap. If you decide to scrap it or part it out send me a private message please.
